The Candle Still Burns

There comes a time to reach for the sky

where imagination and possibilities

linger idly by

when as a young girl

in the month of July

a birthday wish

a candle

in the blink of an eye

dreams set in motion

time tends to fly

and now I’m a woman

molded stronger by and by

to nuture and strengthen

a wish made long ago

to be my own hero

my candle still burns

Shadow and Light

Sometimes I wonder

when thinking of you

how life is so precious

and yet we live through

the heartaches of life

where no one is spared

taking for granted

we’ll always be there

the veil is then torn

between life and death

tomorrows never promised

love with no regrets

The Gift

Beyond that great horizon

that separates earth from sky

lies the Sun in all it’s brilliance

as Cumulus floats on by

A luminous orb of light

Helios wildly shines

rays like chariots of fire

piercing quick and divine

and then the Sol meets it’s equal

standing at Neptunes door

where once it’s light was blinding

come softly near the shore

Caramel Skies 2020

As I gaze upon caramel skies

with strands of gold and blue

dancing upon the ocean waves

a secret rendezvous

Both hand in hand

warmth and peace

a pair that’s tried and true

pirouetting across glassy waves

preparing for the new

starry night in all it’s glory

where wishes and dreams come true

caramel skies at it’s finale

another fine debut
